Polished performances in a great Soundie.
Carolyn Marsh brings to her performance touches of Alice Faye in the way she puts this great number over. There's a marked similarity in looks and body language as well, though others may disagree. Ray Bloch's backing is fine as well. Scores my top rating.

Ray block, before the Ed Sullivan Show(First called "Toast of the Town"). Excellent vocalist, cute number.

No special effects
An old standard, and great band. We have to remember, in the 40's this was a state of the art "music video" - no special effects and no head banging or break dancing. It was a simpler time featuring songs with memorable lyrics and a recognizable beat to dance to. Perhaps our tastes have become too sophisticated. This soundie is good, clean entertainment.

I can't give you anything but a bland performance,
Not a bad rendition of this classic song here by an (of course) unknown singer. She performs this ok, with a suspicious "are they? or aren't they?" playing orchestra. Love the 2 dancing couples here. Strictly a below by-the-books soundie here.

A pretty woman sings ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂI CanÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂt Give You Anything but LoveÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ (Bay-Be!! You remember how it goesÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ) and a couple of dorky couples dance in the kind of nightclub floor show they just donÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂt do today. A charming soundie from the 40s.
